death; midwest is the third LP by solo project of 20 year old Eric Rieper, the happy planets. Its tones and words represent what it is like to be at sea in middle america, adrift without a paddle.

Trippy... 2nd track reminds me of Mazzy Star and Floyd mixed with some newer british (radiohead, etc) vibe. Nice range of tracks... well produced. Some of the panning is slightly overdone but I am guilty of that myself. It's a little too pleasant for me in some parts but it is cool to listen to on headphones... Track 5 has John Lennon written all over... Some of the more more interesting music I have heard on here. Decent guitar sounds. Cool...
